romney's campaign insults voters. through all the flip-flops there has been one consistency in the campaign of republican president nominee mitt romney, a contempt for the electorate. mr. rrm seems to be betting that voters have no memories, poor arithmetic skills and general inability to look behind the curtain. we hope the results tuesday prove him wrong. >> yeah, again, if we put that revenge comment in its proper context, part of what that revenge is about is romney's violation of the public trust. when we look at these different things that have gone on in the campaign, it's very, very difficult to see mitt romney as an authentic campaigner or authentic politician. that's where you get the revenge piece. that's where the oped seems to be right on point. again, we look at a number of different issues. look at the adz playing in ohio right now. you look at that chrysler ad, you look at this desperate republican ad trying to convince black folk that the republican party are on their side. they speak down to voters and let voters understand the ways in which politics gets really,

, how other than an assumption that voters are too dim to remember what mr. romney has said across the years and months, to account for his breathtaking ideological shifts. within limits all candidates say and do what they have to say and do to win. mr. romney by contrast seems to be betting voters have no memories, poor arithmetic skills, and a general inability to look behind the curtain. a "wizard of oz" reference. >> he's counting on those things. it's almost like he's in "men in black" and he thinks he has a flashy thing where he can say something and reverse himself and count on not being called for it. between fouling and the way that mitt romney has run, in a lot of ways if this is the way you can win a presidency, if he can win this way, i think it says horrible things about our policies. >> using the word lie. if you're willing to completely fool your base -- >> your own base. >> you might fool everybody. >> he's lying to the base or lying to the middle. i think one of the essential questions that will be settled on tuesday is does bs work? can you put out the jeep ads when y
